  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Hmm, "vaccine immunity escape" seems to be a new phrase around the Indian "Delta" variant, though the studies do not count any other forms of acquired immunity so I'm not sure they represent a...

    The CW's Superman & Lois starts by giving wifey billing and then casts most scenes in deep sepia tones to ensure all actors look sort of mixed-race mestizo or something. All we need now is a big...

    Re: Absolute Value of a Float

    VB (and VBA) have no cast operations, so for that you'd need to use GetMem8() or PutMem8() calls into msvbvm60 (or something else) on Doubles.

    But then the question is "cast as what?" Currency...
